2002.party

Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the internet (I've always wanted to say that). I'm Leo, I'm 21, and I live in Brazil.

I'm Leo, short for Leonardo. I was born in 2002 and got unsupervised access to the internet around 2008. That combined with the technological delay between the global north and south (I had a CRT monitor!) meant I caught the tail end of that messy, pre-social media internet that a lot of the web revival movement aims to recreate. Though I was also on Orkut and deviantART, I loved personal web pages. This is a gift to my young self: my very own 2002 party.

Studying

Taking seven classes was definitely one of the choices of all time. I'm teetering on the edge of burnout. I also applied for a TA position with my favourite professor, which I'm not sure I'm even remotely qualified for, but you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

November blues

It's that time of the year when you talk about how fast the year's gone by. I've been handling uni way better compared to the start of the semester, so I hope it's a good one. Right now I'm working on an infographic for my Information Design class, which isn't my favourite thing in the world, but it's a lot easier when you have a bunch of references and a general outline in mind.

New site!

Excited to launch my new site, 2002.party. The theme I'm using has a handy microblogging page built into it, so I'll use this to talk about my life. Like Twitter, but without the bad owner. I've had a handful of blogs before, so let's see if I remember to keep this specific session up to date.

…or image captions
add a solid background

or go full bleed

I'm a design major and I make lots of fun little works in my spare time. Here's some of my Jet Lag: The Game fanart.
